Map of Hougoumont

The purple arrow points to the north gate of the enclosure. The black shapes are the Chateau, chapel, gardener's house and barn. To one side is the ornamental garden and the orchard. To the south of the building is the wood. The red rectangles represent the deployment of Guards at some stage in the battle. Beyond the wood are the French Divisions. The Allies are at the bottom of the picture, towards the north.
